On January 20 1850, the HMS Investigator set sail in hopes of finding the lost #FranklinExpedition, and more importantly, the Northwest Passage. The Investigator was abandoned in 1853 when it became stuck in the ice of Mercy Bay. In 2010, we discovered the HMS Investigator just north of #Aulavik National Park.
